Forum: classic_tv Subject: Why does everyone think that "My Mother The Car" was a 'Big Hit'?

I keep meeting people who think it was more popular than "I Love Lucy" back in the 50's.

well, besides it being one of Robin 1990's favorite; it was only on one season and the"villian" Avery Schelber was credited to starting the phrase"whatever"; other than that, I can't think it was more popular than I Love Lucy in the 50's.

I think Robin_1990 was joking when he said it was his favourite. In fact, he e-mailed me and said his favourite show is "I Married Joan".

Hiya Sir Matthew, You are not going to pretend that you are not Sir Robin are you? So the Carlin crack wasnt so hot, Big Deal, I have read worse here. We do value your input just maybe take the trolling elsewhere?

Sorry Matthew, I didnt mean troll as an Offensive term. I meant trolling as in Posting things that will inflame others, Welcome Back, Glad you resurfaced, The forum wouldnt be the same without you. Now we just need to get Ken back in the groove and we will be set. I have more Ozzie and Harriets for you coming up after Victory at Sea.

Seriously though, I've met many people who think "My Mother The Car" was a big hit, and they condemn 50's TV because of it, despite the fact that "My Mother The Car" didn't even air during the 50's!
